Subject: Better than many
Well above the level of the Keystone era. The review here at archive.org has Leo White as the actor offering his daughter's hand to the fire chief in exchange for letting his house burn for the insurance. Actually the girl's(Purviance) father was played by Lloyd Bacon, Leo White, of Mustache fame, played the man who was desparate for his burning house to be saved.
